Georgia, Florida residents react to Florida bill for year-round Daylight Saving Time


There will be more light in the evening.

Get ready to "spring" your clocks forward and lose an hour of sleep this weekend. The barber has young children and was having trouble getting them up for school after adjusting the clocks by an hour.

However, this year is different than most.

Now it's still unclear if taking a nap on Sunday will help you feel alert and refreshed on Monday, but it could help you catch up on the lost hour of sleep.

Beware of your smartphone and other internet-connected devices like tablets and computers, because often they will change the time automatically instead of requiring you do it manually.

According to a National Geographic history of DST, research has shown that more available daylight increases energy savings while decreasing the number of traffic accidents, traffic fatalities and incidences of crime. One way to solve that: Institute year-round daylight saving time nationwide, Steube said. "So we'd just do away with moving the clocks". There still are 78 countries that observe Daylight Saving Time, including Russia, China, Japan, India, and part of Europe. Sunrise and sunset will be about one hour later, on March 11, than the day before. Also, in most parts of Arizona where temperatures can reach up to 115 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit, DST is not observed. It was first approved by the English Parliament as British Summer Time (BST), and Americans later adopted their own version, which is now known as DST.
